Doing better, together

What’s a key ingredient for a flourishing community? Engagement from all corners of the community, including businesses. For us, that includes partnering with local nonprofits and others to support community-led change for bigger and more lasting impact. Our employees are involved too, lending their time and talent to strengthen communities.

Supporting communities around the world

When we think about giving back, we start with the outcome in mind. All our investments and volunteer work are planned out to make a measurable impact.

The issues we’re targeting:

Alleviating Hunger, Increasing Food Security
Expanding racially equitable food access, alleviating hunger in communities.

Advancing Regenerative Agriculture
Empowering growers, protecting habitat, and conserving and regenerating natural resources.

Strengthening Hometown Communities
Making meaningful impact in the communities where our employees live and work.

Advancing Racial Equity
Working urgently and strategically to help advance progress against racial disparities in areas like education, food insecurity, and representation.
